INTRO INTO ME

HEY WHATS UP EVERYONE? MY NAME IS ZACHARY HILLIARD AND IM NEW TO THIS. NOT NEW TO VOICING MY OPINON, BUT NEW TO ACTUALLY WRITING IT DOWN ON PAPER. LET ME GIVE YOU A LITTLE BACK STORY BEFORE WE JUMP INTO THINGS. I GREW UP IN SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN. LIVING WHERE I DID MY SPORTS INFLUENCES (UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, CHICAGO CUBS/BULLS, TAMPA BAY BUCCANNEERS/LIGHTNING) CAME FROM FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND ONCE I GOT OLD ENOUGH, MY OWN PERSONAL PREFERENCE. I GREW UP A CHICAGO CUBS FAN FIRST AND FOREMOST. I GREW UP WATCHING RYNE, MARK, SAMMY, HAREY CAREY AND STEVE STONE. MY NEXT LOVE WAS THE CHICAGO BULLS. WATCHING MICHEAL JORDAN DO THINGS NO ONE HAD EVER DONE AND MAKING IT LOOK SO EASY.  HERES WHERE MY FANDOM TAKES A TURN TO THE SUNSHINE STATE. THE TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS IS MY FOOTBALL TEAM. JOHN LYNCH, HARDY NICKERSON, DERRICK BROOKS, MIKE ALSTOT, THE LIST GOES ON. NOW I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING, THE BUCS? NOT CHICAGO OR EVEN DETROIT? NOPE. NOT ME. I DON’T KNOW WHAT DREW ME TO TAMPA, BUT ALL I KNOW IS I WAS HOOKED. BESIDES THE STICK AND BALL SPORTS WRESTLING WAS HUGE FOR ME TOO. WWF/WCW WERE MY JAM. MY GRANDFATHER WOULD TAPE THEM FOR ME IF I WASN’T ABLE TO MAKE IT OVER TO WATCH WITH HIM. WRESTLING IS ANOTHER STORY FOR ANOTHER DAY. I CURRENTLY LIVE IN SMALL TOWN TEXAS WITH MY LOVING WIFE AND EXPECTING MY FIRST CHILD IN OCTOBER. I PLAN TO COVER MANY SPORTS (AND SOME NONSPORTS IN PEOPLES VIEWS), TOPICS, AND ISSUES I FEEL NEED TO BE TALKED ABOUT. SO, LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED SHALL WE?

MY FIRST TOPIC WILL BE ON THE GREATEST RUNNING BACK IN HISTORY, THE GOAT, IF YOU WILL, BARRY SANDERS. I KNOW, I KNOW, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY EMMITT SMITH, JIM BROWN, WALTER PAYTON, ETC ARE THE GOATS. WELL YOU ARE ALL WRONG. YOU SHOW ME A TAPE OF THEM DOING TO DEFENSES WHAT BARRY DID. GO AHEAD, I WILL WAIT. YOU CANT. THEY DON’T EXIST. TRUE EACH ONE WAS GREAT AT WHAT THEY DID WHEN THEY DID IT, BUT BARRY WAS JUST ON ANOTHER WORLD. I WISH I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HIM PLAY IN PERSON. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE MATTER? UNTIL NEXT TIME, HAKUNA MATATA!!!
